How Far From Cavell to ...

We spend a lot of time looking through Gazetteers & Almanacs that were published in the late 1800's and early 1900's. Many of the Gazetteers include the distance from a community such as Cavell to various places of note, such as Parliament Hill.

  • The National Capital at Parliament Hill (Ottawa, ON) is 619 miles [996.2 km]<1> to the east southeast (ESE). If you could drive a straight line from Cavell to Parliament Hill, with an average speed<2>of 63 miles [101.4 km] per hour, it would take just over a day to make the trip. A comfortable walk of 2.2 miles [3.5 km] per hour would take 36 days. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km] per hour would take 25 days.

Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Cavell) to Point B.Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Cavell. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 50.2294, Longitude: -87.0181    
<2>While we have tried to pick reasonable speeds, the rate of travel is very theoretical - obstacles like fences, hills, lakes, river crossings and rest stops have been ignored. When we say 'Days' of travel, we're assuming 8 hours of travel per day.
<3>The shortest line can be visualized by stretching a string on a Globe from Point A to Point B - this is known as a Great Circle Route. Where you might expect the shortest route from Cavell to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.
<4>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Jerusalem is 313.64 degrees.
<5>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Mecca is 311.655 degrees.
<6>The calculated bearing (or angle) to the Vatican is 305.382 degrees.
